Arch says this is low (psh), but can someone make me some sprites for Game Maker. I am not a good artist (don't make me post pictures0 and I can't find good sprites. So can someone make me some?

no...I said getting sprites from somewhere else is low...
including someone in the dev process of your game isn't low at all.

also, when asking for sprites, or any favor for that matter, be specific.
ask what you want the sprite of. ask what you want them to do. ask what size. ask file size. ask file type.

Nothing wrong with using freely created/distributed resources in projects, it takes a load off in some cases. Remember to place the fellows name in the credits.

Howdy!

Not sure what flexibility you have for your sprite requirements, but Ari Feldman's latest SpriteLibGPL has some car sprites that might give you a start. I don't know what genre you're looking for, but these are very well done in Ari's classic style.

They're half the size that you're looking for, but I scaled them up to the requirements that you mentioned and they don't look bad.

He also includes rotations for standard 8 directions, but it does include them facing up.

http://www.flyingyogi.com/fun/spritelib.html

In the zip, they're in the "maze" directory in the file vehicles.bmp

It might not be what you're looking for exactly, but they might tide you over a bit.

In Christ,
clint

Ah, sorry for the double-post, but there's *exactly* what you're looking for in the Game Maker Resource Pack 01.

*digging up link....*

http://www.gamemaker.nl/resource.html

In the first zip, under res01\Sprites\transport\

Beetle.bmp is 50x81 pixels, car1, car2, police, sportcar, viper, those all fit your specs.

However, I'm sure you might already be using those since you layed out such specific requirements. In that case, Ari Feldman's sprites might be your better bet (though they're a bit more cartoony than the ones in the GM resource pack).

In Christ,
clint

Hi there, I'm new. I found your site today. Looks prety cool to me. Cheers.

I wanna do christian games with Game Maker. I hope I find time to do it cause I'm a very busy person (42 years, wife and kid, living in Cuba, very expensive here, just guess)

Just in case I can do it (pray for me, thanks) I just wonder: is it legal to use so-called free sprites/midis/avis/whatever in a non-free commercial game?

Well, that's all by now. Sorry for my english. God bless every one.

most of the sprite libs come with a readme file or at least something on the site. You can always give the author a shout. Most will probably want a mention in the credits.

I'll do sprites for anyone, no payment, no credits, not even a thanks (in the least), just satisfaction from working on a game. I'll make some test sprites just to start off and show everyone.
